If your backside is lacking the voluptuous curves you desire, maybe it’s time to give Mother Nature a little help. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, Dr. Birchall offers natural buttock augmentation that uses the patient’s own fat cells to create fullness and curves to the derriere. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis with significantly less discomfort and downtime than other types of buttock augmentation procedures. With natural, long-lasting results, it’s no wonder butt augmentation using autologous fat transfer is becoming the go-to method for many patients today.

What is Autologous Fat Transfer?

Autologous fat transfer is the process of removing fat cells from one area of the body and transferring them to another. At Dermacare, the removal process is performed via laser-assisted liposuction (LifeSculpt using SmartLipo™), which allows us to remove isolated areas of fat from locations like the hips, thighs or midsection.

Removed fat is purified to be placed back into the body. The fat augmentation process is performed by injection, similar to the process used for dermal fillers. However, fat transfer lasts much longer than fillers.

Fat Removal with Less Trauma

Laser-assisted liposuction utilizes laser technology to liquefy the fat cells for easier removal, resulting in less trauma to the body and a shorter recovery period for the patient. The laser energy also effectively tightens skin for a smoother result overall.

LifeSculpt can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. Most patients are back to regular activities within a couple of days after the procedure. The treated area will appear slimmer and smoother, with results that are permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained after the procedure.

Creating Natural Curves

Once the fat is removed, it can be prepared for injection in the same treatment session. Fat injections will be placed directly into the buttock area in strategic locations that will guarantee a balanced and natural result. The injection process involves minimal discomfort and most patients tolerate the procedure well without any type of anesthesia.

While the recovery period after fat injections is also just a couple of days, you will need to keep pressure off the buttocks for a number of weeks to allow the fat time to take in the new area. This means no sitting directly on the buttocks during this time. The more closely you adhere to this post-procedural instruction, the better your results will be.

What to Expect from Your Results

Dr. Birchall typically injects more fat into the buttocks than you want, since a percentage of the injected fat will be reabsorbed by the body. For the first few weeks, your butt may feel swollen and larger than you would like. However, that will change as the fat is reabsorbed and remaining fat is properly distributed.

Once you achieve the full results of your buttock augmentation, those results should last you for many years. Your butt will both look and feel natural, so no one will have to know you had a cosmetic procedure!

Buttock augmentation is an effective way to dramatically enhance your body profile. In addition to the butt, the same procedure can be performed to add size and fullness to the breasts.
